An Interdisciplinary Approach to Web Design
The theory of interdisciplinary studies can be understood to apply to the creation, not just the study, of a complex system; in this case, to the creation of a Web site. We examine the aspects of a Web site that make it complex, and the disciplines used in its creation. After interpreting the steps in Web site design as steps in the interdisciplinary process, we critique specific Web sites and show how they could be improved through a more fully interdisciplinary Web design process. We conclude with recommendations for making more interdisciplinary both the education of Web designers and their organization into Web design teams.
